From rags to riches, David Reynolds takes pole on the Gold Coast

Following an early lap exit from the Repco Bathurst 1000 and a mega repair job as a result, David Reynolds has rewarded the Penrite Racing crew with pole position for the opening race on the Gold Coast.

It was a large repair job leading into the penultimate round of the Repco Supercars Championship on the Gold Coast for Penrite Racing as David Reynolds set a 1m 10.431s as Shane van Gisbergen failed improve to fall short by 0.403s.

Right behind the leading duo, van Gisbergen’s key title rival Cameron Waters placed his Monster Energy Racing Ford Mustang in third after just making the Top 10 Shootout as old sparring partner and former teammate Chaz Mostert lines up alongside in his Mobil 1 Optus Racing Holden ZB Commodore.

Shell V-Power Racing Team’s Anton De Pasquale was also lucky to make the Top 10 Shootout, but moved to fifth as he edged the Castrol Racing Mustang of Thomas Randle.

James Courtney is out of seventh in the Snowy River Racing Mustang, while the first of the hard luck stories is alongside in the form of Brodie Kostecki in the Boost Mobile Racing by Erebus ZB Commodore after copping a kerb strike.

A lock up cost Will Davison as he aborted his lap at the opening chicane, while another to receive a kerb strike was R&J Batteries Brad Jones Racing’s Andre Heimgartner, who will start 10th.

The opening 250km, 85-lap encounter for the Repco Supercars Championship will occur at 3:45pm AEST (4:45pm AEDT).
